Keep Your Home More Comfortable and Energy Efficient with Duct Sealing
On August, 02, 2017
If your home’s heating and cooling system is inefficient, it very well may be a result of ducts that are not properly sealed. Regardless of how good a condition your heating and air conditioning system is in, if your duct system has any tears or disconnects, you’ll see your energy costs rise. Up to 20% of the energy you’re using to heat and cool your Tampa home could be being wasted by unsealed ducts.
There are also many contaminants and pollutants that could be coming in through unsealed ducts and polluting your indoor air. So having one of the professionals at Florida’s A/C Solution professionally seal your ducts will increase your home’s energy efficiency and contribute to higher quality indoor air.
What Can You Do?
There are some parts of the Tampa Duct Sealing process that homeowners may be able to handle on their own. So you may be able to improve your Tampa home’s energy efficiency without the assistance of a professional. Use metal tape or mastic sealant for all repairs you try on your own.
To repair your ducts, start in the attic and look for kinked, flexible ductwork that you can straighten out. Make sure you don’t tear the material. If you find any torn ducts, reseal the tears with metal tape or sealant.
- Remember: Despite its name, duct tape will not adequately seal ducts for a long period of time. If you find any disconnects in the system, reattach and them and seal.
If the problems with your ducts are too extensive, you will need to hire a professional, and Florida’s A/C Solution can help.
